For me, this is the best hip-hop album of all-time. Actually, it's the best album of all-time. No other albums move me like this, no other albums have every song, every second of it absolutely perfected. I love this album to death, and I can seriously listen to this 24hours straight. The verses are all top-notch, and I can't think of any album that has better lyricism, and most of all, CONSISTENCY! And you gotta remember that the 60 minutes of heaven you hear right here are amongst the most original ones! That's just something incomparable. And then the fact that you have 9 rappers. On a debut album. Nine swordsmen that are incredibly hungry it's unbelievable. And they are very skilled. So, just think about it! IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO GET BORED! And that's only the rapping. You have RZA. Seriously the beats are insane! Kung-Fu samples is that original or something? And overall, the drums, the bass, EVERYTHING here is bangin!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The beats are so rough, they hit harder than anything, and it's just amazing how somebody can make beats like this! Incredible I say. But since this is my favourite album of all-time, I will break this down track by track, because I feel that way I get to say the most about this album.
